we were out of cupcakes!

Not a really big mystery of what happened to this one....

I made these from scratch using a simple & delicious recipe in my kitchenaid cookbook. They are dark chocolate cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting [and pink sugar]. The kitchenaid cookbook was one of those impulse buys from the custom cabinetry section at Lowes. You know how they have a weird display of cutting boards or spatulas just sitting there by the marble samples? Well, they had these cookbooks there, too. It turns out to be one of the best cookbooks I have ever owned. Every recipe is delicious and they all involve putting some stuff in your mixing bowl and turning it to medium speed for a few minutes. Even the wheat bread - put some stuff in the bowl and turn it on = the very best whole wheat bread recipe ever! I really love to cook & bake. But I also really love to just put some stuff in a bowl.
I sort of tried to make these look pretty, but seriously, someone is just going to poke them all with her tiny, little fingers anyway.
